involved and an example that sometimes something positive can come out of something negative i want to also thank supervisor weiner we addressed the issues of vandalism that involved an officer shooting that took place a few days back but whatever the reason there's no excuse for that kind of activity and vandalism for local businesses simply trying to survive struggling to stay /a float and that's simply not a proper way to express any kind of frustration so again we look look forward to looking with the agencies community partners and i want to thank everybody involved
